If I have 21 RSUs vesting may 21 but another job offer (not from a FAANG but from a Series D SaaS), could I ask new company to “buy out” my RSUs? They want me to start May 1 so I can go on a company trip end of May. What are options people have tried? I don’t want to stay at Amazon until May 23 because will miss the trip with my new company and not have any time off in between jobs (I’m burnout). Amazon

Where do people leaving FAANG companies go to in Canada? I’m looking for a change but it seems like a lot of the Canadian based companies pay half of what I’m currently making. Who outside of FAANG / LinkedIn/ snap / Twitter pays well (I.e senior mgr / director level above $300k)

Hi all , need a suggestion. I am currently getting an offer of 40 lpa in India with one of the FAANG companies . The role is not in a fancy team and is okayish.

I am confused as to which direction to take. Please let me know your pov in terms of opportunities in SEA, salary

Came across this: One of the biggest reasons for our unhappiness is our expectations. Sometimes we expect from others. Sometimes we expect from ourselves. Although the fulfillment of expectations from others is beyond our control, the expectations we have from ourselves are under our control.
